Obama and McCain: Washington´s
newest odd couple

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 7/27/2013 1:35:22 PM

There was no conciliatory phone call, no heart-to-heart talk to soothe the tensions. No one knows exactly when President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain went from bitter rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign and foes over health care and national security to bipartisan partners.Yet in recent months, an alignment on high-profile domestic issues — not to mention an eye on their respective legacies — has transformed Obama and McCain into Washington´s most unexpected odd couple. The Arizona senator is a regular visitor to the West Wing and in near-daily contact with senior White House officials.

Comments:
McCain, crossing the aisle....to play nicey nice with a Marxist, as he does everything he can to destroy conservatives. Our 2008 nominee.

This is typical McCain. It´s not a bit odd. He is pathetic. The nation´s gratitude for military service and POW status was bountiful, but I think he has drained the tank dry.

Don´t forget the debate (and Sat Night Live reproduction) in which John McCan´t was wandering around the back of the stage while Barry was speaking.

JM is more pathetic than Weiner.

I used to think a lot of McCain, but since his pretty pathetic run for the Presidency and, particularly, since then, his statements, actions, and positions have convinced me that he is not really a Republican or a Conservative at all.

john mccain was not OUR nominee! He was selected by the media and crossover voters in the early primaries that allow that. He is an example of the reason our selection process must change. Heavy red states should hold the early CLOSED primaries.

I´ll agree they are, indeed, an odd couple, but not new one´s. By design, McCain handed Obama the 2008 election: No. I don´t know why.

I predict Sarah Palin will be the catalyst for a third party before the end of this year; and, why not. Conservatives have nothing to lost by starting one.

I also believe there are many, democrats whom are tired of the liberal fantasies, which will flock to a third party. One´s that would never switch over to become republicans . . . Why should they? there´s not enough difference between the D´s & R,s to motivate them to become republicans.

The only question left is what was McCain paid or promised? You don´t give up a life of principled military service and work and suddenly lick the hand of the enemy like a whipped dog. McCain didn´t really want to be president or he would have run a much better campaign and beaten the muslim/kenyan. What´s in it for him now?

"Bitter rivals"? LOL! LOL! LOL!

McCain spent the entire campaign playing kissy-face with Zippy. His favorite "attack" against Zippy - - was to quote Robert Browning - - "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."

It was my strong impression that they were bipartisan partners in 2008. McCain repeatedly expressed his approval of voting for Obama. It was one of the craziest things I´ve ever seen.

The real problem is republicans aretoo civilized,while the left takes no prisoners,using every dirty tactic in the book to win.

Just another examplelast week was banning college republicans from Obama´s speech. A blatent act of discrimination,solely based on a political belief system. Obama,as a president of the whole country,has absolutely no business discriminating against people over the false fear they could be a security risk.

In McCain´s case they just love to use him as a stooge to make the republicans look more open minded,when he hardly represents the party´s belief system as a whole.

Then you have his sidekick,Miss Lindsey who threw in the towel on opposing Sotomayor on the first day of hearings. How many times have we seen the left go to the mat stopping conservative SC judges.But no,we have to play nice and give Obama the benefit of the doubt.

Hardly an odd couple. When John McCain entered politics, he realized he couldn´t get elected as a Democrat, so he ran as a Republican. He has always been a Democrat.

The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week. Obama will be hosting two events on the economy

Republican megadonors wouldn’t flood elections with private money if federal law forced individuals to immediately disclose their gifts, not only in public records but in advertisements too, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday. “The Chamber of Commerce told us that if their members had to disclose, they wouldn’t give to these secret PACs,” Pelosi said. Pelosi’s comments come as House Democrats plan to aggressively push for campaign finance reforms after the Supreme Court decision on Wednesday to eliminate caps on the total amount of money an individual can give to candidates, party committees and PACs.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
